Scholten & Baijings’ first project for Herman Miller is the perfect expression of its designers’ artistic process.
Designed by Carole Baijings and Stefan Scholten of Amsterdam-based Scholten & Baijings, the ColourForm Sofa Group was inspired by the creative tensions between color and pattern, between surface and form, and between design and production that defines every project the designers undertakes. It is the perfect expression of its their artistic process.
Scholten & Baijings is known for sculpting in pattern, texture, and color. When designing furniture, the designers consider the play of light and shadow, and the geometry of forms that comfortably host a variety of human postures.
Throughout their practice, the designers emphasize multiplicity and combination with their designs, and, in their ColourForm Sofa Group, the result is a vocabulary of multiple lounge seating pieces, including two- or three-seat sofas with or without arms, a club chair, ottoman, bench, sectional, and a distinctive tête-à-tête (an S-shaped piece that allows people to sit facing each other).
